In addition to its Cypress battery cell technology, Sakuu reports it is continuing to make progress on its Kavian Additive Manufacturing platform. Arwed Niestroj, Sakuu Senior Vice President of Customer Success, presented at the 2023 Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures USA Congress in Detroit on June 21, stating, “We have proven with our platform that we can print polymers, ceramics, and metals — using various dry processes in one device and also in one layer — which no other Additive Manufacturing company can do. This enables Sakuu to print batteries as well as other active devices.”
“We are in the business of developing and licensing revolutionary manufacturing technology for OEMs to mass produce batteries with higher performance at less cost,” commented Robert Bagheri, CEO and founder of Sakuu. “Creating an advanced Cypress battery chemistry uniquely positions Sakuu to deliver on our innovative Kavian manufacturing platform. This is our invitation to battery manufacturers everywhere to work with us on pushing boundaries and capturing previously unattainable benefits.”
